      Hi Hayley,

      If your daughter is 6 in October then she’d be eligible for an U7s team next year. At that age, the children can play in mixed teams – boys and girls. As a club, we don’t currently have a team in that age group – we have three teams at present: one U12s team and two U10s teams. We insist on doing things right — we grow our club slowly with proper quality checks in place with each new team.

      So, if your daughter has a group of friends who are also interested and there are parent volunteers who are willing to pitch in, then as a club we could help you to at least get a regular practice session going. We mentor and help new coach volunteers — we have some very experienced coaches at the club who would be glad to help new volunteers get up to speed.

      If that helps then please feel free to get back in touch.

      Kind regards,
      Mark – Club Secretary, Stonnall Juniors FC.
